About the send sends in XXX_STREAM_TEST's could anyone tell what layer
of the seven layer model the send size refers to as I need translate
send size in acutal frame sizes to comply with RFC 1944 to measure

: e.g a 4kb stream. Is that 4kb being send from the application layer,
which means by the time it reachs the physical layer the actual size
send is increased due to encapsulation by the lower levels.

or is the send size at the physical layer which in the case 4kb
includes higher level encapsulation (heads and the like).
